Toronto: Media Luna Acquires ‘Luna’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Latest film from Dave McKean plays Vanguard section

MADRID — In the run-up to the Toronto Festival, where the fantasy drama plays in the Vanguard section, Media Luna has acquired worldsales rights to “Luna,” the latest film by U.K. artist-director Dave McKean (“MirrorMask”).

A celebrated illustrator of graphic novels (“The Sandman”), CD covers (for Machine Head, Fear Factory, Alice Cooper) children’s picture books (“Crazy Hair”) and concept artist on “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” and “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” McKean’s first feature, Sundance 2005 premiere children’s fantasy “MirrorMask” combined live action and animation. He returns to the mix, this time targeting adults, in “Luna.”

Written by McKean, “Luna” centers on a couple who, after losing their baby, visit a friend in his isolated and idyllic seaside house. Over a long weekend, secrets are revealed and the life of their dead child is lived out in a series of fantastical dreams that become an opportunity for spiritual healing.

Produced by Simon Moorhead, “Luna” stars Michael Maloney, Ben Daniels,  Stephanie Leonidas (“MirrorMask”),  Dervla Kirwan (“Ondine”) and Maurice Roeves (“The Acid House”).
